We will refer to the nullity of the Paris Arbitral Award of October 3rd, 1899. The award is null and void for a number of violations of the 1897 Washington Treaty and the then international law. Specifically speaking, the Paris Award is null and void because it violated due process; incurred in the defect of overuse of power and decided beyond what the arbitral tribunal was required to weigh and, consequently, incurred in the defect of ultra petita, by lacking grounding in law and violating the arbiters’ duty of impartiality.
